Ramadan, the month of Muslim daylight fasting, when followers of the Islamic faith cannot eat, drink, smoke, have sex, or indulge in 'sinful behavior' until the sun sets, is finally at an end, and "thank goodness for that!" say Muslims the world over.
This year's Ramadan ran from 5 May until yesterday, 4 June, and turned out to be quite a trial for those amongst the Islamic fraternity who like to satisfy their hunger or thirst by daytime snacking, or those who fancy a cigarette.
It's been arguably far worse for those Muslims who are characteristically romantic, and can't help helping themselves to the company of a good woman, girl, goat, or whatever is their preference. Sinners also have found it difficult to manage their urges.
Now, however, like the long, flowing white robe of a bedouin nomad caressing the hot desert sands, a collective sigh of relief will ripple through the Islamic world, and people can get down to doing what they like, when they like.
As long as the goat will stand still.
